Double spool on Weed Wacker

After trimming a short time with the weed wacker, both spools go back inside the weed wacker even if you click it on the ground every so often.
How do I keep the spool from going back into the weedwacker

thank you

    how do you add new line



1 Answer


This isn't a solution to the problem. However, I think you should talk to someone at Home Depot or Lowes or wherever you bought the model, and see if the string is in there correctly; if it is, then u'r weed wacker must have some other mechanical problem. Sometimes it is just best to buy a new one. The more expensive models are the best.

The line on the B & D Electric Weed Eater has broken off. I can take the Orange cover off, but I do not know how to get the spool so I can continue weed eating.

Not avoiding the answer but if you google (" re-string a weed wacker video?" ), you can watch a video of how to do it, which may be a lot easier to understand when you see it.

How do you get the spool off of a gas (31cc) ryobi weed wacker? The string is stuck up in the spool and I can't get it out.

The knob on the bottom unscrews, and the spool comes apart once you get that off.

Wind string on Spool

Most weedeaters have an arrow on the spool. Look at both ends, you'll probably find the arrow. Put your line into the hole and wind the line in the direction of the arrow until you have enough loaded.

Black and decker 110 volt grasshog

The last time I used the weed wacker it kept stopping-almost like a short. The battery is fully charged and has a lot of power when working. Would the problem be in the handle and can that be taken apart to see if there is a loose wire?
